    Not me. I had a friend in school (3o years ago) who told me that if you complain about both the cold and the hot you are just an *******. For some reaon that stuck with me. I'm a cold guy

    It's too bad that the creation of the air conditioner creates a huge power bill for me.

    Not for me, I have a heat pump and my AC is practically free in the summer however in the winter when the eletric heater in the heat pump has to kick in while the pump is defrosting (practically every 15 minutes) the electric bills are brutal.

    Right now it's a heat index of over 100 out there and with my AC blasting it's 77 in the house . . . that to me is hot, hell anything over 50 degrees to me is hot.

    The guy that invented the power bill was a deeeek.

    I feel your pain George. We are in the middle of a heat wave here in the interior of British Columbia too. 33 celcius right now which is 91.4 fahrenheit with hotter days in the forcast next week. I'm wearing out my air conditioner but I'm sleeping at night. Highest ever recorded here was just over 41 C which is about 106 F. We don't all live in igloos here in the Great White North.

    Hello Amish!

    James
    Fully agreed, electricity is the greatest invention.

    At this specific time, with the AC running in the bedroom it is 73 while the remainder of the home is still at 78 (too hot for me ).

    However, Florida has countless beaches in order to aleviate the heat discomfort. Actually, Florida is very sought by Canadians for vacation. There are never any heat issues with Hotels loaded with AC systems I would much prefer heat from April to November then being stuck freezing my butt from February to April

    When I was up north, we never even heard of central air, but if we went back up ( yeah, right, NOT ! ), we would get a central air unit. Also to note, after freezing in the Buffalo area and we moved down here, now we have a fireplace ? WTF, over ?
    Actually, up north, I liked snow tires the best, next to snowmobiles that is.
    Tried the studs all the way around, but really, the Michelin X-Ice or Bridgestone Blizzak's at all 4 corners, to me, in that neck of the woods, were an even greater invent.
